Five or Six years ago I met a group of people at my own cache so that they could help me fix my coordinates. This group of strangers invited me to a geocaching event that afternoon and I decided to go. Mainiac1957 was one of those characters and we have shared so many adventures together. I am so happy that he chose my event for his 5000th cache. Thanks Brad for everything you do for geocaching and your friends. You are special and so is this number.... 5000!

Well KK - Mainiac1957 also set me straight on my ways with my first cache placement too. And to think - I was willing to go meet a strange man with a ME license plate GOCACHR all alone. Well, husband of reason did ask and went with me. We both gained a forever friend and his family. So happy to have shared some of those 5000 finds with him AND hope to do many more. Congrats Brad - you are an asset to the sport!

So what if he's got 5 caches. That's easily done in a matter of minutes these days. Good grief, even my granddaughter has more than that......

Wait a minute, hold the phone!!!! Now I see what all the hubbub is about, it's 5,000 not 5!!

Congrats!!

Thanks for all the nice sentiments. It has been quite a ride indeed. I made 5000 an event, because the friends I have made while enjoying this activity/hobby/sport/obsession of ours is one of the main reasons I continue go out there. Karen, you are someone I met early on. June 18th 2005 at your Savage Park cache. We have had such a good friendship ever since. I was happy that it was your event. Of course having all of the Allagash Rescue Rangers in attendance was a bonus as well. To all of you I have met at events or out on the trail, it's been so much fun I guess I will just have to keep on caching. If you see me at an event and haven't met me, please come up and introduce yourself. Trust me, it will make my day.
